    Hey guys, adding the prototype to my live auction, however this WIP was something itching to be created. Still in early stages, here is a sneak peak to my MP Grimlock Crown!

    I will be casting 999 more of these, and will keep you all up to date with information regarding that as soon as it's available.

    The crown design was built using images of the early prototype for inspirations, as well as the comic images, like this one:

    Created using 1/16" styrene and some secret parts, this crown clips onto Grimlock's robot mode head. I will make available 2 types: the first will be painted with a chrome like gold and feature a thin red pinstripe along the bottom of the crown. There will also be a "Premium" version which will feature diamond like gems crested around the Crown's points.

    I still have lots of detail work to go on the original, including fixing the crown's points so that they flair outwards more like the reference picture...refining the details and edges, etc...it's gotta be p-e-r-f-e-c-t. Once I get more refined images on this, I will post them...Then it's on to some major casting.

    Y'know, I'm a Marvel Transformers kid from way back, so this is weird to admit... but I would have been much more into Grimlock's whole "king's crown" motif if his crown hadn't been so damn stupid looking!

    I mean, you've got it down, FR... it looks just right. But man, I never did like that crown design. :)

    the crown was only in the very first pics and was likely cut for cost since most Japanese never read those comics.

    I'm sure that if you put the same effort in to this that you put in your repaints it will be awesome. Oh and yay me for suggesting you do this in your toyark thread :)

    well - the "prototype" seen in the pics above will be the original which I will create the mold from. It will be detailed and gilded with 23.5 karat gold.

    Looks pretty nice F_R. I might bite on this when I see the final product and the price tag.
